......and use two ribbons/lace or twine, at least one brad and to include a summer fruit element. (You do not need to use the colours in the photo unless you feel inspired to do so).
And here is my card:
Well how could I not opt for strawberries as my summer fruit element, what with Wimbledon event on at the moment. I love this little PTI stamp set.
I wanted to use bright summer colours and wanted to add some sunny yellow, so these little cherry blossoms are a perfect to add a light sunshine!

Anyway, the dare set this week by Lythan is to interpret the wedding rhyme,
and something blue"
So use some old and new stash and if you can include the borrowed and blue as well that would be awesome. And do tell us what is what.
Here is my card:
Well I thought this would be an easy challenge but how wrong was I? I only managed 3 out 4 of the elements and it took me ages to actually put the card together!
My 'Old' was the small little pink and blue paper roses. I've had these in my stash for the last 4 or 5 years! I tend to use the larger flowers first and these tiny ones are always left over! My 'Blue' is the large Gardenia Blossom flower (I love these at the moment, have you noticed?)
My 'New' was a few things, the pink velvet ric rac, the Tim Holtz pins and my new papers.
I didn't manage something 'Borrowed' though, I spent hours thinking of what I could 'borrow' from someone or something but came up blank!

Here is my card:
I love how this turned out, especially as I seem to have misplaced some of my nesties and of course the one I wanted to use!
This gorgeous cornflower blue gardenia is available from the ribbon reel, as well as the cherry blossoms and tea roses.
As I misplaced some of nesties, I couldn't fit the sentiment I wanted from Say It Loud in, so I could only use one of the Very Vintage Labels No. 4 instead. The sentiment is from PTI. I finished the card off with some natural crochet lace and aqua blue velvet ribbon, also from the ribbon reel.

I probably went for an obvious rock n roll theme but I love how its turned out. Completely out of my comfort zone and not colours I would usually choose but it was totally fun to put together.
The skull and crossbones is a rub on by Love Elsie.
The pearl aqua seam binding has been stained with Crushed Shells Glimmer Mist and scrunched to give it an old scruffy look (hopefully you can make it out in the photo), with a pink button tied to it with some yummy red button twine.

I so loved making this album although couldn't get all the items listed in the kit. Unfortunately, you cannot buy the made up kits over in the UK (as far as I am aware) so I attempted to get most bits individually! So there are a few items I had to improvise with.
At first I was a little disappointed with the way it turned out but the more I look at it the more I like it! I'm tempted to make another one and know how I would change it.
How gorgeous is this little closure and that beautiful pearl trinkets? There is space to add more jewels or pearls next to the tassle on the book closure.
The pages are made from the Prima Botanical range and cut at different widths to add some interest. I can't wait to start filling this pretty album, although I am still unsure what to use it for, a photo and journalling album, art album or perhaps a book to hold inspirational ideas for future projects.
